The SaaS Product Roadmap
WeWork Custom House

You know the pain: there are so many features you want to build and bugs you want to fix, but there's not enough time to do it all. How should you prioritize? How can you align your product roadmap with your business goals?

We've all wasted time and money building things that nobody wanted, and we've neglected features and UX improvements that could've made a difference. The question is, how do we know what's the optimal way to use our development hours?

These are some of the topics we'll probably discuss:

• Jobs to Be Done (JTBD) framework to align features with business goals

• Scrum, Agile and Kanban frameworks to prioritize issues and manage dev teams

• How to incorporate user feedback into our product roadmap

• How to manage remote teams effectively

• The Lean way of testing assumptions to avoid building things that nobody wants

We're looking forward to sharing what I've learned from my mistakes building Billy, and learning from your experiences as well.

Coffee, tea and draft beer will be provided. Come hang out with other SaaS founders and share your story!

Hacking a SaaS: A Practical Guide to Understanding Attack and Defense
Solutional Inc

Hacking a SaaS: A Practical Guide to Understanding Attackers and Defending Against Them

In this talk, we will delve into the mindset of an attacker and explore the vulnerabilities they exploit in SaaS systems. We will cover the following topics:

What motivates hackers to target SaaS systems (5%) How hackers conduct reconnaissance on SaaS systems (50%) The anatomy of exploit chains (40%) Strategies for defending against attacks (5%) Our goal is to provide a practical guide to understanding attackers and defending against them. We will share lots of hacker tips and tricks, and provide plenty of quiz moments to train your intuition. Our focus will be on vulnerabilities that hackers actually care about, rather than theoretical ones. All of our examples will be based on real-world exploit chains, and we will explore multiple vulnerabilities chained together to create media-news-headline-worthy outcomes. By the end of this talk, you will have a better understanding of how attackers think and operate, and you will be better equipped to defend against their attacks.

Our January host and sponsor is Solutional Inc, and the talk will take place in their Portland office at 301 SE 2nd Ave.

Please RSVP here if you are planning to attend.

This is a monthly event of OWASP's Portland chapter.
